You can bet on anyone in the race. You just go over their character before the race launches and you place your bet. You only win the money if who you bet on wins. You also have to make sure you've actually placed the bet, once you have selected the amount make sure you are hitting X to lock it in.

ahh ok so i did bet on myself because i dont usually look at other characters

and yeah one time i set the amount but i forgot to press x it remained red tho

i always make sure to press x

plus at the end of the race it told me bets - 2,500

 

its really not that big of a deal for me.. i have 2 billion dollars

just that playing a broken game (or maybe i did something wrong but i dont think so) isnt fun imo

same thing has happened to me.  I just figured I accidentally bet on someone else, but I don't look at other players either.  might be a glitch, but in the scope of things a pretty inconsequential one.

This has happened to me twice recently. Luckily it wasn't much. Some type of new glitch I guess. :/

Maybe there are other prerequisits besides winning 1st in some races. Or it could be the person you were racing had better odds of winning. It has the odds listed on the screen. R* probably tweaked it so new players have better odds against experienced players.

 

Dunno... seems like every time I bet, no one else does so I think I've only won a bet once ot twice before.

whaat?

so if i bet on myself and actually win the race i might not get the money because my opponent had a bigger chance of winning the race anyway?

wth yeah right
